Miss Dominican Republic will be costumed as a carey turtle on occasion of her participation in the Miss Universe 2018 contest in Bangkok, Thailand on 16 December 2018. The pageant will be televised in Santo Domingo.
Miss Dominican Republic will be wearing the “I Love Carey” costume in honor of the Hawksbill sea turtle (carey) that lays its eggs in the Dominican beaches, according to a feature in Diario Libre.
The costume is designed by Dominican designer Leonel Lirio who has had received praise for his innovative, stylish and uniquely Dominican costumes worn by the contestants representing our nation. He designed the costume for Ruth Ocumarez who was the Miss Universe runner-up in 2002 and the first place attire worn by Amelia Vega when winning Miss Universe in 2013.
